5 March 2021
The chief executive of NHS England will be questioned by MPs on how the Government’s recent proposals to reform the NHS, health and care will be implemented at a time when the NHS will still be facing significant pressure as a result of the pandemic.
Purpose of the session
Sir Simon Stevens, one of the architects of the proposals, will be quizzed on how changes are likely to affect patient experience and care, in the second session of the Committee's inquiry into the Government's White Paper.
The session will also probe plans for integrated care systems, the provision of adult social care, workforce numbers and the extension of the powers of the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.
The proposals under discussion are those outlined in the Department of Health and Social Care White Paper Integration and Innovation: working together to improve health and social care for all.
